Office of the Attorney General

Attorney General

Bob Ferguson

Like many Washingtonians, I come from a family of veterans. My late father was very proud of his Navy service, both of my grandfathers served in the military, and many of my uncles fought in WWII. Their experience instilled in me an ethic of respect and appreciation for military service.

The Attorney General’s Office is proud to support our military service members, veterans and their families. These proud Americans have done their part to honor and serve our country—and it’s only right to honor and serve them in return. The Attorney General's Office does this by working to:

  • Engage veteran and military communities;
  • Educate veterans, military personnel, and their families about their legal rights and benefits;
  • Enforce the laws within the office's scope of authority that protect veterans and military service members; and
  • Encourage the development of policies that benefit veterans and military service members.

We owe it to our veterans and service members to stand up for them, and work to make sure they receive the benefits and protections they have earned. Because of their service, there are federal and state laws that extend certain rights and benefits to veterans and service members, including laws to help avoid credit and foreclosure problems, and laws to protect against discrimination in employment and housing. Veterans and service members may also be entitled to healthcare, education and other benefits. The information provided on this web site and in the Attorney General's "Military & Veteran Legal Resource Guide" is intended to help educate veterans, military personnel, and their families about the legal rights, protections, and benefits that may be available to them.

It is an honor to be able to serve Washington's veterans, military personnel, and their families.
